The protesting employees were demanding the release of long pending salaries. Hundreds of the protesting employees including their children assembled at Partap Park Srinagar and registered their protest.

But nobody is concerned about it," they said. The protestors threatened to intensify protests in case their demand is not met forthwith."Our wages have been withheld for past 22 months. We are at the verge of starvation. Our children have been asked at the schools to clear fee or else sit at home," they said.They accused the authorities of acting indifferent to their plight. The children of the protesting employees who had arrived at the protesting site with their school bags waved placards appealing authorities to release the pending wages. They said their parents are unable to meet the expenses incurred on their education. (CNS)
